Reviewer: Greg Watson
Pink Mass plays a brand of grind that is everything extreme metal fans crave--depravity, heavy riffs, etc. The band's name alone could warrant a full paragraph but if you don't know what a Pink Mass is, go look it up, it's pretty cool to use for a band name. Musically the band lays everything out there from grindcore to crust to punk to black metal and they all work together to form this nasty concoction of extreme metal that is just a pleasure to listen to. The vocals are a great mix of growls and high screams and also fit the grindcore formula perfectly. The production is surprisingly crisp and allows you to revel in the insanity. You won't find grind like this and I dare say you won't find grind that you will enjoy as much as this either, so go on out and pick this one up and prepare to be Necrosexual-ized.
